Our New Years Eve Box is here!

For this most anticipated New Years Eve, Chris has cooked up a decadent, dippable, sippable party in a box. If you haven’t been able to snag a Clover meal box (they keep selling out!) this one might be our crowning glory, focused on rich finger food and sparkly drinks, and designed to be unpacked and spread out for hours of snacking with minimal prep. Choose your size (2-10 people) then select pickup or free delivery for 12/30 or 12/31. 

To set up your celebration, surround our massive rainbow of dips and spreads with pickled Winter Moon Roots for dipping, house potato chips dusted with paprika, nacho cheesy popcorn, marinated mushrooms and more. Pull a bubbling cheesy brussels dip out of the oven, along with a goat cheese mushroom bruschetta. Heat up a “stupidly yummy” three cheese sourdough pizza from Richard Bourdon at Berkshire Mountain Bakery. Sneak two Flour sticky buns for yourself, or quarter them for everyone to enjoy.

For the first time ever, Clover Meal Boxes will have boozeWe’ve teamed up with cocktail wizard Jared Sadoian of Craigie on Main to make wintery-tinged cocktail kits; add ice and optional mixers from your own liquor cabinet (we’ve got a nonalcoholic version too)

Don’t forget to add a Midnight Breakfast Box. We’re bringing cheesy grits back onto the menu for the first time in 4 years and welcoming sunchoke season with our decadent sunchoke truffle breakfast sandwiches.

🥂 The full menu 🥂

A rainbow of dips
Our favorite spreads and dips of 2020. 
– Silky organic hummus with all the fixings (tahini, olive oil, za’atar)
– Jalapeño cream cheese spread with honey sriracha drizzle (if you were a fan of the Bridgewater sandwich, you’re going to want this)
– Whipped local black bean lime dip (remember me from the Venezuelan Plantain sandwich?)
– Romesco sauce (addictive Spanish red pepper dip)

Fondue without the pot
The Clover version of spinach-artichoke dip has thinly sliced local Brussels sprouts (in season, way yummier than spinach). Pop the tray into the oven til it’s warm and bubbling. Set it on your buffet table with a plate of sliced Clover pita, then visit it multiple times over the course of the night.

– Fresh-baked Clover pita bread

– Assorted Rhode Island mushrooms (including king oyster, blue oyster, shiitake, and crimini)

About a year and a half ago, at an open-to-the-public food development meeting at Clover, we blind taste-tested a new plant-based pulled pork. This wasn’t a totally new thing for us to do—as a company with a climate mission, we tend to get a lot of samples of plant-based everything, and we love trying all of them. We’ve tried mycelium-based mushroom meats, wheat-and-soy nuggets, and burgers made from kelp. One bite in, and it was clear this pulled pork was special.

Squeaky paneer, mint cilantro chutney, chaat, and our first-ever collab with a local chef. Remember when Pushpir came into the kitchen and schooled us on Northern Indian food? That was 2013. A different CloverHSQ than the one you visit today (back then we were at 7 Holyoke St, across the street from where Kevin and his team now serve you). I still remember the smell of the cilantro, mint, jalapeños, and orange juice Pushpir was blending in the Vitamix. We hadn’t smelled that exact combo before…

This week has been a flurry of preparations as we kick off the 2024 food truck season. We did an event at Tufts over the weekend, in a few days we’ll be selling breakfast and lunch at a conference at the Media Lab at MIT, and this weekend we’ll be pulling up to a private party with sandwiches and appetizers.

Every year, just after Valentine’s Day, we start getting the same question in from customers: Will there be a Passover Box this year? Sometimes the pleas are more direct, sometimes more colorful. The glories of the vegetarian Chopped Liver are a common theme. This year, Sarah, an NYC-based friend of mine said she’s spent so much time thinking about the emails describing last year’s box that she’s DRIVING UP TO BOSTON to claim one!

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.

For the week of Valentine’s Day, we’ll be delivering these Making Whoopie (Pie) Kits 😉. They have everything you need to make whoopie pies — more specifically, Chris’ favorite oatmeal cakes with beet buttercream frosting. You’ll also get a scoop for making the perfect size pie, and a roll of sugar cookie dough for more sweet fun.

Pull out your plaid and cue up the bagpipes because it’s Clover’s third-ever celebration of Burns Night, an introduction to Scottish food/drink/music/poetry and a reason to raise a glass during this dark and cold month! You may be asking yourself, what is Burns Night?

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I’ve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…

New Year’s Eve is no time to be buried in the kitchen, so we pack our NYE Box with Clover fan favorites that come together fast and encourage a night of Finger-Food Feasting. Can you think of anything better than digging into bubbling hot Brussels Sprout Cheese dip on a freezing cold Boston night? Or scooping up our bright nutty Romesco sauce as the clock ticks to midnight?  And our breakthrough Carrot Lox (probably the best thing to come out of our food dev in 2023) will have you resolving to spare more salmon in the year ahead.
